    At 13, most ballet students are busy working on their grades or character dancing exams.

    Yana Cherepanova, however, is well on her way to ballet stardom – both on and offline.

    The Russian teen has been sharing videos of her incredible dancing on Instagram (where she has over 67,000 fans), having crowdfunded her fees at the famous Vaganova Ballet Academy.

    Yana’s mum, Olga, says her success is down to a strict regime and a touch approach to failure.

    ‘I am a demanding mother when it comes to ballet,’ she says.

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry appeared at Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London, today, to begin their work with the Commonwealth Youth Forum together.

    Which is lovely, of course. But we all know why you’re here: To find out what Meghan wore for the occasion.

    We don’t blame you – Meghan Markle’s outfits are always on point. Here’s what she wore this time around.

    Meghan turned up the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre wearing a vertical striped, button-covered sundress (perfect for the current semi-heatwave we’re having)… Read the full story

    Renee Denyer is the manager of the award-winning ‘Shh Women’s Erotic Emporium’ in London.

    Having visited there ourselves many, many, many times, we wanted to have a chat with her about how and why ‘Shh’ came into being, and what the future holds.

    Right now, they offer women (and men) orgasm classes, and if there’s anything we’ve always want to know, it’s how to have a better orgasm.

    Miranda: So what are the workshops?

    Bibi: The one we’re talking about is orgasm classes.

    Renee: This is it, I teach women how to have orgasms. How to have longer ones and stronger ones and better ones and wetter ones. Or just A Orgasm if you’ve never had one.

    Miranda: Brilliant.

    Renee: Yeah, it’s a good part of my job.

    Miranda: Do you have any top tips you can give us?

    Renee: Oh yes, I can talk about this forever.

    So first of all, we meet a lot of women who have never had an orgasm… Read the full story

    woman in summer
    Warm weather is always a dilemma (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    Every year, when the sun finally starts to shine and the temperature begins to creep up, I’m faced with a dilemma.

    Am I going to spend the summer months sweltering in long-sleeved tops?

    Or am I going to grit my teeth and bare my self-harm scars?

    Why self-harm isn’t ‘something just teenagers do’

    It’s a tricky decision.

    These are not the faint silvery traces left behind after self-harming as a teenager. At 39, I continue to struggle with the urge to injure myself, and the many recent scars that streak across… Read the full story

    Is your hair dull and lacklustre? Hard water may be to blame (Picture: Ella Byworth/mylo)

    We’ve probably all heard of hard water and soft water, but did you know that hard water can damage your skin and hair?

    Here’s what happened when I ditched the shampoo and cleansed my hair with clay instead

    Neither did I until my excessively dry skin finally led me to Google.

    Body butter wasn’t touching it and even shea butter couldn’t shift it. My skin was a permanent shade of ashy grey and it drove me nuts.

    I quickly discovered the culprit – hard water.

    Mental illness can be a difficult conversation.

    Especially if you’ve never experienced it yourself. It can be hard to know what to say, or how to help.

    But usually, the most helpful questions and answers are also the most simple ones, such as: ‘How are you?’ and ‘Do you want to talk?’

    Sometimes, all a person suffering with bad mental health wants to do is talk. To have someone there to listen to them, so that they can get all of the bad things going on in their head out in the open.

    But this can be a scary thing for someone to do – because there are some people out… Read the full story

    tampon macarons

    We’re a very period positive bunch.

    Chat about your flow. Carry your tampon to the bathroom proudly. Recommend a cup for your deskmate. It’s all fine.

    So naturally we’re enthusiastic about the launch of macarons designed to look like tampons.

    It’s not that this is a thing we’ve always wanted (we never considered tampon macarons before, honestly), but if delicious treats are a way to get rid of shame and awkwardness around periods, we’re all for them.

    The tampon macarons are the creation of OhLaLa, who partnered with charity Bloody Good Period to bring them to life.

    I wasn’t going to let IBS hold my career back (Picture: Liberty Antonia Sadler for Metro.co.uk)

    I would wake up in the morning absolutely certain that the Immaculate Conception had occurred overnight, leaving me four months pregnant.

    How IBS affects my mental health every day of my life

    But no – it was the constant recurring bloating that comes with having irritable bowel syndrome.

    If it was a particularly bad day (and there were plenty), I would dodge eating altogether until I was home from work again.

    I would do anything to avoid the embarrassment of multiple toilet trips while at work.

    Flying is already a comfy, plush experience, right?

    Definitely not a crowded, clustured, noisy section of hell. Nope.

    So naturally we rejoice at the design of these new plane seats, which reduce your leg room so much you’re practically standing, or doing a light lean. Just what you want on a flight.

    The upright style of seating, called the Skyrider 2.0, is the creation of manufacturer Aviointeriors, who presented their seats at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg.

    Hold off on the summer diet, because Mini Vienna Ice Creams have just made a return to Iceland.

    If you love Viennetta, but an entire block of ice cream is a bit too much for you (or, you just don’t have the willpower to restrain from eating the entire thing), these ice cream lollies are perfect for you.

    The Vienna ice creams are basically Vienetta, but they’re much smaller and come on sticks – meaning they’re much easier to enjoy as a snack, and don’t require any bowls, so you don’t have to worry about washing up after.

    If you’re running the marathon on Sunday, make sure you’re not planning to leave the city immediately after.

    Because businesses all around London are offering free food, protein shakes and booze to heroic runners as a reward for all their hard work.

    And if that doesn’t get you over the finish line in record time, nothing will.

    From Battersea to Shoreditch, all you’ve got to do is brandish your medal at various eateries in exchange for some free grub.

    If you’ve recently gone through a bad breakup, or you have an ex-friend who’s been pretty sly, you can now tell them to eat a dick.

    Well, to be precise, you don’t actually have to tell them. You can send them a penis in chocolate form, and we’re pretty sure they’ll get the message.

    Thanks to Firebox, chocolate dicks are a thing, and they’re heavily detailed.

    They’re made with rich chocolate, are ‘shaped like a big knob’, and include a very veiny shaft and balls. Each one is completely solid chocolate.

    25-year-old Alex Brown lives with a rare condition that causes constant hunger. Her parents used to lock the fridge just so that she couldn’t steal food.

    Alex has a condition similar to Prader-Willi syndrome, an incurable genetic disorder which causes overeating and often leads to morbid obesity.

    Alex, who has an associate’s degree in social and behaviour science and is studying towards one in early childhood education, was diagnosed with Prader-Willi aged three.

    It is caused by a defect in a paternal gene in chromosome 15 which disrupts the function of the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls the release of hormones.

    The condition, which affects one in 15,000 babies… Read the full story

    Newt the baby wallaby has bounced back to health after being rescued by zookeepers who turned a rucksack into a makeshift pouch.

    Newt weighed just 20 grams when he was born – and was just a little bit larger than a baked bean.

    The red-necked wallaby would have had to crawl through his mother’s fur from the birth canal into the pouch where he began to suckle – but was abandoned.

    Originally from Tasmania and Eastern Australia, the red necked wallaby is a hardy species and very capable of surviving in the harsh British weather conditions.

    The humble 99 cone is a summer staple here in the UK.

    Forget your fancy prosecco ice lollies or granitas, get a cheap cone and some soft-serve ice-cream and stick a flake in it for maximum effect.

    For some reason, we all just know to ask the ice cream man for a 99, but where does this name actually come from?

    A woman who has severe psoriasis has started taking bare-faced selfies to Instagram, in a bid to embrace her body.

    22-year-old Poppy Challinor has had psoriasis, which developed all over her face and body, since she was 13.

    When Poppy first noticed flakes of skin on her scalp, aged 13, she thought it was just dandruff.

    But when anti-dandruff products recommended by a pharmacist had no effect, she saw her GP for advice.

    Told she had psoriasis, which causes sore, dry patches of itchy skin, she was referred to a dermatologist.

    (Picture: Giphy)A burrito is something to behold.

    A perfect mixture of rice, beans, meat (or veg) in a tortilla.

    There’s one unanswered question about them, though, and it isn’t ‘why is guacamole extra at Chipotle?’

    It’s ‘could Jesus microwave a burrito so hot that even he could eat it?’ and it comes from this scene in The Simpsons.

    Despite the fact it’s simply one of the many ramblings of Homer, it’s got people puzzled – mainly because it forms part of a question on quiz game Google Feud.

    Flanders is right, it is a real honeydoodle of a melon-scratcher.

    The answer all depends on whether you believe in Jesus (or at least how you believe in him).
